Judicial and political power are inextricably linked in America, but by the time John Roberts and Samuel Alito joined the Supreme Court, that link seemed more important, more significant, and more pervasive than ever before. From war powers to abortion, from tobacco to integration, from the environment to campaign finance, Americans increasingly turn away from the political tools of negotiation, bargaining, and persuasion to embrace what they have come to believe is a more effective, more efficient, and even more just world of formal rules, automated procedures, litigation, and judicial decision-­making. Using more than ten controversial policy case studies, LawǃÙs Allure: How Law Shapes, Constrains, Saves, and Kills Politics draws a roadmap to help politicians, litigators, judges, policy advocates, and those who study them understand the motives and incentives that encourage efforts to legalize, formalize, and judicialize the political process and American public policy, as well . . .

What are the causes of war? To answer this question, Professor Waltz examines the ideas of major thinkers throughout the history of Western civilization. He explores works both by classic political philosophers, such as St. Augustine, Hobbes, Kant, and Rousseau, and by modern psychologists and anthropologists to discover ideas intended to explain war among states and related prescriptions for peace.

El prestigioso economista Daniel Lacalle nos propone en este ensayo un apasionante viaje alrededor de las principales ideologías que en materia económica y social pergeñan el mundo en el que vivimos. En dicho periplo no sólo conoceremos el propio recorrido ideológico del autor -­en el que transitó, tras leer y conocer en persona a sus principales ideólogos, del colectivismo al liberalismo austríaco, plaza en la que izó la bandera de la libertad y la responsabilidad individual-, sino que entenderemos cómo han evolucionado hasta nuestros días las grandes corrientes de pensamiento tales como el colectivismo, el monetarismo o el liberalismo. Asimismo, entenderemos por qué, en los últimos tiempos de crisis económica, política y social, las distintas ideologías se han convertido en argumentos arrojadizos de tantos y tan reconocidos economistas -­pues la ideología está siempre presente y emana ineludiblemente en sus planteamientos-, y por qué, a menudo también, dichas ideologías se han . . .

In November and December 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered five lectures for the renowned Massey Lecture Series of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The collection was immediately released as a book under the title but after King’s assassination in 1968, it was republished as The collection sums up his lasting creed and is his final testament on racism, poverty, and war. Each oration in this volume encompasses a distinct theme and speaks prophetically to today’s perils, addressing issues of equality, conscience and war, the mobilization of young people, and nonviolence. Collectively, they reveal some of King’s most introspective reflections and final impressions of the movement while illustrating how he never lost sight of our shared goals for justice. The book concludes with “A Christmas Sermon on Peace”—a powerful lecture that was broadcast live from Ebenezer Baptist Church on Christmas Eve in 1967. In it King articulates his long-­term vision of nonviolence as a . . .

1948 Palestinians (Israeli Arabs)—a significant minority of Israel's non-­Jewish population—are the invisible man in the Palestine conflict. This book presents fresh insights into their political behavior. Using social movement theory and original field research material, it analyzes two case studies in their history: Land Day 1976 and Habbat October 2000. By offering a more inclusive framework of analysis and acknowledging the role of human agency in transcending some of the material barriers to mobilization, the author offers a more comprehensive explanation for 1948 Palestinians' political mobilization and enables a better understanding of contemporary developments in the region.
